Martha Schmidt scored 15:51 into the game to give Huron a 1-0 lead. Chea Rael-Whitsitt scored 12:28 into the second half to give the River Rats a 2-0 lead. Danielle Rathfon scored with 1:09 left.

The Memering girls have been receiving art awards since grade school. Ever since they developed the dexterity to pick up a pencil/marker/paintbrush, they have felt a magnetism towards all mediums and forms of artistic expression. Their homes, as well as their many relatives’ homes, are all filled with the many paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photography that the girls have done over their lifetimes. They find art to not only be a useful avenue in which to express their inner emotions, but a wonderful way to share a piece of themselves with those they are connected with.

Without discipline, excellence is fleeting. Excellence requires focus, the ability to focus and to create for oneself a sense of structure. Discipline is the dray horse of excellence: it means will power, self-sacrifice. It requires a long-term outlook. Paradoxically, discipline can be liberating. It shapes your identity, it provides a sense of ritual, it gives you the freedom to build.
